After indulging in a rare break from the road (and letting his honeymoon phase linger a bit longer), it seems Dutch artist Tiësto never missed a beat. As soon as festivals and shows returned,  the ‘Love Comes Again’ producer unleashed his signature euphoric beats upon massive crowds like those at Creamfields, New York City’s Electric Zoo and the newly-opened, 100,000-square-foot Zouk Nightclub in Las Vegas, where he holds a coveted residency. Fans hear plenty of his fresh tunes at these high-profile affairs, too. 
 
Shortly after signing with Atlantic Records in 2020, Tiësto released the first single from his upcoming album entitled ‘The Business', and it became a huge international hit through 2021. More recently, he followed it up with bass house-heater ‘Don’t Be Shy’, featuring Colombian singer/songwriter Karol G. This pop-centric cut bears a stark contrast to the music he’s released under the melodic house alias VER:WEST. The newest of that lot dropped last month — a  remix of French 79’s ‘Diamond Veins’, which received a smooth, progressive treatment to elevate the electro-powered original.
 
Tiësto’s Musical Freedom imprint has been in the spotlight too, with powerhouse collaborations like ‘Impossible’ from David Guetta and MORTEN just scratching the surface of what’s yet to come from his camp.
